Folk rebels Mawkin will be embarking on a 12 date tour over the next month that will showcase their brand new album release The Ties That Bind.
Throughout this album launch tour expect to hear rousing songs of rebellion from David Delarre (Eliza Carthy, Tred) underpinned by the frenetic fiddling fingers of James Delarre (Saul Rose & James Delarre, Topette) and virtuosic bellowing of Nick Cooke’s melodeon (Kate Rusby, Jim Moray) held together by a solid rhythm section with Danny Crump on Bass and Lee Richardson on Drums. There is an exclusive limited edition vinyl release of the album, limited to just 300 copies on a first come first served basis, pre-orders are open now.
Since their formation in 2002 three-times-BBC-Folk-Award nominees Mawkin have grown into one of brit-folks brightest new guns: a blistering 5-piece band fusing folk, blues and rock, they are no strangers to the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while still retaining all the verve and mystique of ancient folk music traditions from across the globe.
